Synopsis: Daemon will do anything to get Katy back.
After the successful but disastrous raid on Mount Weather, he's facing the impossible. Katy is gone. Taken. Everything becomes about finding her. Taking out anyone who stands in his way? Done. Burning down the whole world to save her? Gladly. Exposing his alien race to the world? With pleasure.
All Katy can do is survive.
Surrounded by enemies, the only way she can come out of this is to adapt. After all, there are sides of Daedalus that don't seem entirely crazy, but the group's goals are frightening and the truths they speak even more disturbing. Who are the real bad guys? Daedalus? Mankind? Or the Luxen?
Together, they can face anything.
But the most dangerous foe has been there all along, and when the truths are exposed and the lies come crumbling down, which side will Daemon and Katy be standing on? And will they even be together?
I LOVED this book! At the beginning of the book, right after Katy gets captured, it hurts to see Daemon. "Thirty-one hours, forty-two minutes, and twenty seconds had passed since the doors had closed, separating Kat from me. Thirty-one hours, forty-two minutes, and ten seconds since I last saw her. For thirty-one hours and forty-one minutes Kat had been in the hands of Daedalus." This KILLED me. :(
I enjoyed how the book was in both Daemon and Katy's point of view. The one thing I didn't like about this book is sometimes the chapters are split between Daemon and Katy's POVs and it can be confusing if you miss the marking where it distinguishes who is talking. I personally read really quickly (sometimes annoyingly) and sometimes skip over where is changes and I get really confused and have to go back to see who's point of view I'm actually reading in. But we finally get the awesome privilege to see the world in Daemon's eyes, so it was worth it!
Throughout the whole book, there was nail-biting, action-packed scenes. People that we thought couldn't be trusted really can't. The plot twists in the book has us guessing until the very last page.
Wow... Jennifer L Armentrout never fails to impress.
